the broadfoot family

one of my favorite things about working outside of a studio is that i most often have the opportunity to capture a family's moments in their own favorite spaces. every now and then those spaces are not only special to the people i'm photographing, but they're absolutely inspiring to a photographer's eye. take a beautiful day and a home that's been passed down through generations, add one incredibly photogenic family of four and a dog, and you've got magic. ;)

meet my new favorite models. :) i love this expression.

we had plenty of smiles too...but this serious face is so beautiful to me!

Thanks so much to John and Marla for sharing your perfect family with my camera!

the jenkins family

in this line of work i'm lucky enough to meet beautiful new people everyday. every now and then i come across a families that can't hide how much they love one another - their smiling faces give it away. those are the sessions that stand out, and when i visited the jenkins' home on sunday, i knew immediately that this would be one of the greats!

i can't imagine what evan's folks have to go through when he looks at them with those big brown eyes. i'll bet he's got them wrapped. :)

thanks jenkins' family! see you soon!

growing like a weed

it's been six months since stacey and kelly welcomed baby eli into the world, and eventhough i'm lucky enough to get to see this cutie pie quite often, i still can't believe how much he's grown. he'll be a big boy before they know it!

with fall in on the way, the pumpkin patch seemed like the perfect place to play. eli wasn't quite sure what was going on, but he warmed up eventually.

back at home with his favorite two buddies, mom and dad, he was definitely ready to play.

Until next time!

cynthia & raymond...and kids

it's always exciting when i find pet parents who want to include their furry family members in their engagement and family portraits, but i've never had a family-to-be quite like this one. one dog, two dogs, no problem. but FOUR dogs, well...i learned that with cynthia and raymond as their problem!

this happy happy couple will be getting hitched next summer in a ceremony that will represent both local and chinese wedding customs, and i can't wait! while i don't think these sweet boys and girls will be there, i'm so happy that i had the chance to meet them. my CAT isn't this well-behaved!

gotta love a happy couple. :) thanks cynthia and raymond for such a fun shoot!
